Iranian Consulate informs:
Travelers with a single entry visa will not receive a visa sticker into the passport. The consulate awards a stamped permit. This permit must always be carried at arrival and departure and for the duration of the stay. The entry and exit stamp is applied to the permit. At the time of arrival and departure and for the duration of the stay, the passport must always be carried.
We would like to recommend keeping the permit after the trip, for any future travel.

Best regards
